Good pick/mattock but with reservations ~ reviewed by JohnG

I have used this pick for digging in VERY hard ground. It’s held up very well to a lot of abuse. Excellent product.

The spade end did bend a bit when it hit some hard granite. I used a sledge hammer to straighten that out.

Update July 2009: Yikes~! Just busted the handle on this bad-boy whacking away at an old tree root. If I could I would revise my review to a 3 as the handle should not have failed like this. I’m going to order another non-wood handle.

Replacement handle ~ reviewed by Keith Lofstrom

I also broke the handle on this mattock, prying down on the handle too much. I am a wimp, so handle breakage will happen more often for stronger people. The wood is smaller on the long axis of the oval where it enters the plastic sleeve than an all-wood handle, and since the torsional breaking stress goes up as the cube of this dimension (says the engineer) this mattock handle breaks more easily than an all-wood handle.

The replacement handle is Ames True Temper 2036900: AMES TRUE TEMPER 2036900 MATTOCK REPAIR HANDLE – 36″

I put it on by using a Really Big Bench Vise to squeeze the top of the plastic until it is a bit rounder, then banging the metal tool part on with a sledge.

Great Product ~ reviewed by Samuel

Good quality and was bought as a gift because my son kept borrowing mine. I like the handle and its bushing.

Cheap tool for a reason ~ reviewed by C. M. Dalton

Purchased this to dig trenches for footings. While using the tool over a period of two days I bent the mattock portion. In addition I broke the tip of the pick off. Seems that the steel is very low quality.

A good sturdy Pick/Mattock ~ reviewed by W. Brown

Prefer the wooden handle more than the synthetic type. This is a great work tool for the yard. Recommended.

Perfect tool ~ reviewed by Justin Kasdorf

I’ve used this for various yard projects since purchasing it. I don’t know how I ever lived without it. I highly recommend this for how well it is made, how well it works, and for it’s great price.

and this sturdy and light hickory handle is a joy to use ~ reviewed by Amazon Customer

I use mattocks almost daily, and this sturdy and light hickory handle is a joy to use. I’m ordering a second one to add to my collection!

Good product for price. ~ reviewed by SamT

Good product. If it had a fiberglass handle would have been great as those last longer. Cant beat the price. Would buy again.
